The time has come for biohacking humanity’s future! Working together as a species has never been easier and the needed technology exists. We can co-create a sustainable planet if we want to. One Community is open sourcing all the components as a starting point and prototype set including sustainable food, energy, housing, education, for-profit and non-profit economic design, social architecture, fulfilled living, global stewardship practices, and more.

One Community’s physical location will forward this movement as the first of many self-replicating teacher/demonstration communities, villages, and cities to be built around the world. This is the December 3rd, 2017 edition (#245) of our weekly progress update detailing our team’s development and accomplishments:
Here is the bullet-point list of this last week’s design and progress discussed in detail in the video above:
HIGHEST GOOD HOUSING: @6:17
DUPLICABLE CITY CENTER: @9:19
HIGHEST GOOD FOOD: @10:36
HIGHEST GOOD EDUCATION: @11:06
HIGHEST GOOD SOCIETY: @11:40
One Community is biohacking humanity’s future through Highest Good housing that is artistic and beautiful, more affordable, more space efficient, lasts longer, DIY buildable, and constructed with healthy and sustainable materials:
The core team continued Sketchup design for the open source outdoor areas of the Recycled Materials Village (Pod 6). This week we updated the storage rack and added a border to the Scrabble game, designed a Four-In-a-Row Yard Game, a ping pong table, and began designing the children’s playground. You can see all of these shown here.
And the core team continued working on the thermal lag page. This week redid the formatting and organization of the page, updated the menus and jump-to links, and added about 30% more content to help with readability and clarity. We’d say the page is now 95% complete.
Christian Ojeda (Mechatronic Engineer) completed his 30th week volunteering with our team. This week’s focus was further developing the Vermiculture toilet chamber designs, continuing to improve last week’s designs for the emptying the chamber with pulleys and a winch. The latest progress is shown here.
